29 August 2019

The state of Nordrhein-Westfalen claims criticism of the third amended State Treaty on Gambling by the European Commission will not lead to any major changes to the wording of the legislation.

Earlier this week it emerged that EC general director Lowri Evans had cast doubt as to how effective the Treaty would be in channeling operators and players into the legal market.

The panel considered that new online gambling regulation, due to be enacted in 2021 and including casino, poker, sports betting and perhaps other verticals such as betting on eSports, offered a promising perspective.

Authorities in Schleswig-Holstein might re-establish and enforce regulation of the online casino market. However, enforcement and payment blocking in particular are currently used on the basis of a federal administrative court decision prohibiting online casino.
